(VIDEO) Iowa City Public Library Recommends, First Watch the Movie, then Read the Book

Every Friday we will be featuring some Staff Picks from the Iowa City Public Library that you can check out on the weekend. Also we have a list of their new video releases.


Nothing is better than having a good book or movie to look forward to for your weekend, at least that's what I think. With the aid of April Harder, Public Relations Specialist at the , here are a few suggestions for books you can check out in person or on the E-Reader of your choice.

This week Harder recommends a few movies that would be great for kids to watch from the library's movie area and then enjoy in book form as well.

You can learn more about these and other staff picks at the Iowa City library by visiting their Staff Picks blog. For some other book suggestions, check out the suggestions in our discussion.
